Hello from Stoneheap Wood!

Postby Amy and Micah » 02 Oct 2016, 06:34

Hello from Amy and Micah who own a small wood in West Lothian which is currently being put into coppice and standard management. It was planted about 20 years ago and left to its own devices until we bought it 5 years ago. It contains 800 hazels which are coppiced in a separate shorter cycle, (8-12 years), while the main block of the wood will be coppiced on a 25-28 year cycle. A big part of our work will be replant after each cut to replace the Sitka, dead alder and now dieing ash. This will give an opportunity to experiment with a range of natives for future coppice market opportunities. We would be delighted to meet/chat/show interested folk about our work so far. I have read with interest the blogs and look forward to reading/contributing more :D
